Ronnie Fieg has created a buzz around Asics that was unseen until Kith’s commander-in-chief blessed the Gel silhouettes. To get a pair is damn near impossible, as his collaborations are extremely limited and hyped beyond belief (for all the right reasons). His latest vision takes form in the shape of the Gel Lyte III “Flamingo.” Fieg has been tweaking this concept since 2009 and is finally ready to release these to the world.
The Flamingos are inspired by the fluorescent pheasant, whose feathers do not become pink until they feast upon the ocean’s gilled occupants. The Gel Lytes employ hues of grey-beige, salmon, and blue comprised of nubuck, mesh, and lined with neoprene, a material never before seen on a Fieg collab. For added comfort, the Flamingos will feature memory foam insoles to make you feel like you’re walking on clouds.
Although it’s Mission Impossible to get your hands on these beauties, the Ronnie Fieg x Asics Gel Lyte III “Flamingo” will release on Friday, August 2nd at 11 AM EST. They will be available in-store at Kith NYC stores, and will also be available via the Kith Online Shop.
May the sneaker gods be ever in your favor!
